A new TV show in Iraq called There is Someone is a chat show where the hosts have fun and chat and joke about a range of things, including sex. The material is daring, the audience is huge, the censors are grinding their teeth, the panelists have concerns for their safety. It’s interesting, brave, fun stuff.
